12×18 original pastel on sanded paper, matted and framed, $300 plus shipping

I wasn’t a Girl Scout.  I was a Camp Fire Girl.  I do like the motto of always being prepared, however.  As an artist, I keep a sketch pad in my car and a graphite stick in my purse.  I am in the stage of mothering that requires me to be a taxi service.  That involves a lot of waiting.  I don’t mind at all if I have my supplies. If I am really on the ball, I have a handful of pastel sticks and a camera.  I have missed many opportunities, but I have also been prepared for a few as well.  This painting was derived from a time of waiting on a piano lesson to end.
